Windows on ARM - Windows RT
Microsoft still isn't offering a clear answer on whether ARM-based Windows 8 computers will support the classic Windows desktop, but a recent blog post suggests that the company will.
The post, on Microsoft's Building Windows 8 blog, is a rather technical discussion on power efficiency. Buried deep in the post, however, is a discussion of System on Chip (SoC) architectures, and how they can enter a state of “connected standby,” during which the computer runs on very low power while still receiving information. The blog discusses how Windows 8 will handle both desktop and Metro-style apps in connected standby.
As ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley points out, ARM-based devices use SoC architectures, so the fact that SoC devices will run both Metro-style and desktop apps suggests that ARM-based computers will support the Windows 8 desktop after all.
